THE RUNDOWNPosted on Monday, November 12th, 2007 at 1:55 AM
How was your weekend? Mine was actually really good, even though I couldn’t do all the stuff I planned on doing but it still turned out pretty well.
So what did you get up to?
I am always sooooo gutted when I realize that Monday is only a few hours away! Back to work, back to work…ohhh I just remembered that I have a work training thing for the next couple of days so I am going to be in a hotel in the middle of nowhere…oh well!
Anyways, lets get down to the business….
It’s another RUNDOWN!
Richard wins Big Brother Africa II
Richard Bezuidenhout has won Big Brother Africa II. Despite the sexual assault allegation scandal, Richard still scooped the $100,000 prize. Ofunneka came second and Tatiana came third. Congrats to him, I just hope the allegations are not true and the ‘activities’ with Ofunneka were consensual but I still have my reservations.

D’Banj @ the MTV Europe Video Music Awards
It’s no longer news that D’Banj won the Best African Act at the MTV Europe Video Music Awards but what IS news is the kokolistic (yes, that’s a word!) poses D’Banj decided to unleash on the press. Click on the 1st pic to check it out. Congrats to him anyways.
I read this article and it just pissed me off so much. What is even more disturbing is that it was written by a woman! Nigeria really has a long way to go. The press especially should start realizing their impact on society. The ignorance demonstrated in this short article is very damning. Click the photo below or read the quote below.
”Some ladies present were raped, while some luckily escaped. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. But need we blame the rapists? What with the dressing of some of the girls, who were scantly dressed?”
See how she flippantly said women were raped and then went on to ‘blame’ them for dressing scantily, as if they deserved it!!! Jesus Take the Wheel.
That’s it for today! Have a fab week….
